    ISO: Lightweight 6" travel dual-crown fork

    Considering building a Cannondale Uber-V with 6" travel front and rear and am looking to keep the weight around 27lbs. I'm currently thinking that the Maverick DUC 32 is the best choice for me, what are my other options?
    '06 Cannondale Rush 1000 4" travel 27lbs
    '04 Cannondale F600 SOBE -STOLEN!
    '96 Cannondale Uber-V 6" travel 30lbs

    Manitou Sherman Slider - cheap and relatively light weight. It was lighter than my single crown Zoke Z1FR3.

    Check out ebay for a Specialized E150. Those forks receive a bad rap due to a few bad apples but for the most part are really good...

    Ditto that, but if you go for an E150 make sure it's an 08 model, most of the issues were with 07's. Great fork.

    Or a fixed '07

    Many or most of the '07 models were fixed to the '08 spec. We had to send back all the '07's we got, so I'm thinking most of them are probably fixed. It's a good fork.

    That said, I'd choose the DUC32. Oddly I think there's a lull in production if I heard correctly while they're gearing up for that newer model carbon killer version. The aluminum version is allegedly not discontinued. Spot bought Maverick, but this appears to be a good thing overall for Mav.

    Double crowns might make you feel 1337..
    But in reality i really dont see any use for it. Totem/Lyrik/Pike cover everything you really need for AM useage.
    And yes i have a boxxer ride atm so i have had experience with dual crown AM forks.
    Lean back, Hit both brakes, And ask yourself, Do you feel lucky today?
